him anywhere. the nurse that treated jackson, cherilyn lee. she told "360" jackson begged her for propofol so he could sleep. her spokesperson told us they had no idea her name was in the search warrant but is chaoticing with investigators. >> the other big news you got word that the autopsy was delayed again. what is going on? >> i spoke to the source who told me the coroner's office met with the los angeles police department and the district attorney's office and made what he called a joint decision to delay the release of the autopsy and the toxicology report indefinitely. all parties agreed to that because they need more time to gather information. they are working on what my source called follow up. i asked if it is still possible the results may be released last week. the response was "i have no idea." >> do you know what the delay means for dr. murray? he seems to be the central focus of this investigation or the most prominent name bandied about. >> right. i spoke with his office and the spokeswoman wasn't sure what to make of it. if the delay was good or bad. she said
jackson and lee worked so well together. what would've happened, you believe, if stonewall jackson hadn't died when he did? >> you know, -- >> thing start to fall apart. >> because jackson after the valley campaign, he came to fight after the seven days of battle around richmond. and as you know, was mediocre, inconsistent. he fought well at fredericksbu fredericksburg, fighting a defensive fight. chance they'll came along. it was a flank march that lee decided upon was a risky maneuver against an army again about twice his size. it worked. what i think that jackson's attack it pretty much run its course after that first evening. the federalist gathered a huge amount of artillery and was blown away any further attack. so jackson had run his course of there. so he had an inconsistent performance. i think a lot of that gettysburg would have depended on how well rested jackson was. and a lot of intangibles. i think you would have probably performed better than you'll. ewell was not want to take on a lot of responsibility. he was a wonderful subordinate, but not real good when he had to mak
this sheila jackson lee video where she takes the phone call? if there was not blocker who had a camera and put it on my blog and send it out, how many people think that would have been on msnbc? the thing is -- and at the same town hall, a lady happened to be there and she represents herself as a pediatric surgeon, and she was not. if you're going to affect your profession, also affect your name. [laughter] that is a good rule of thumb. the "houston chronicle" put her on the paper and said that she was a pediatric surgeon. there was a blocker pleasant who actually google her and that she had a myspace page. he actually interacted with there and she admitted that she was not a doctor. this is what blockers are doing out in the grass roots. -- bloggers are doing out in the grass roots. they live in houston are wet rubber and they are making a difference. >> they are feeding that information into a talk radio apparatus. we're really starting to work well together. there is no doubt that the liberals will start pushing the fairness doctrine again. >> if people like you, they are with us to

him anywhere. and the nurse that treated jackson for a few months, cherilyn lee, mention in there as well. jackson begged her for propofol, the sedative reserved for hospital use so he could sleep. they had no idea her name was in the search warrant but is cooperating with investigators. >> you got word today from your sources the autopsy was delayed yet again. this time indefinitely. what's going on? >> reporter: that's what we're trying to figure out. i spoke to the source who knows about the autopsy who told me the coroner's office met yesterday with the los angeles police department and district attorney's office and made a joint decision to delay the release of the autopsy and toxicology report indefinitely. all parties agreed to that, i'm told, because they need more time to gather information, go through medical records. they're still looking at follow-up. i asked if the results may be released next week. the response was, quote, i have no idea. >> do we know what the delay means for dr. conrad? i mean for dr. murray? clearly at this point it seems to be the centra

the nurse practitioner, cherilyn lee. she's the woman who claims that michael jackson was begging her for the drug propofol. >> let me clarify. you're saying they were looking for any correspondence related to those people or did they find correspondence related to those people? >> they were looking for it. it's not clear if they found it, but they were looking for any correspondence with michael jackson or any of those aliases as well as the doctors i just mentioned. >> of course, the timeline on the day michael jackson died extremely crucial. let's listen to the personal chef who was there that day. >> around 12:00, 12:10, dr. murray comes running down the stairs and into the kitchen stairwell into the kitchen. he comes into the kitchen screaming, hurry, go get prince, go get security. dr. murray is screaming something may be wrong with your dad. we're all panicking and wondering what's going on. paris is screaming and crying daddy, daddy, daddy. i'm driving in my car. i hear on knx, mr. jackson is pronounced dead. >> dr. kerry peterson. internal medicine, lennox hill hospital, than
guys see the sheila jackson lee phone call on tv? how many of you think if there wasn't a blogger that have this sent out, how many of you think this would be on cnn or nbc? and then in the same town hall there was elated that happen to be there and she represents herself as a pediatric surgeon, and she wasn't. and if you are going to fake your profession, also fake your name. that is a good rule of thumb. the houston chronicle ran with the story. they put her in the story and said she was a pediatric surgeon. there was a loggerbl aogg blogg there who interacted with her, and she admitted she was not a doctor. this is what they're doing it at the grass roots. these are people who live wherever and they are making a difference. >> sometimes they are feeding that information into a talk radio. there is no doubt the left will start pushing the fairness doctrine again. >> the important take away from what you both said it is people like you here who were with us today, are the ones that will go out and do this today. you cannot do this from washington d.c.. it issue from washington d.
are listed in here and that also explains why his offices were a focus most recently. also, michael jackson's nurse cherilyn lee, we have spoken to her on msnbc and i have spoken to her personally a number of times. she's listed in here that michael said she was giving him, quote, a cocktail. i don't know what that means. i called her and asked her to explain that in a little more detail, but murray is now saying this is what michael jackson told me. this is the information i was given, and so the fact that he was given this information that somebody was giving him a cocktail that helped him feel better does make you realize dr. murray was asking questions along the way. however, he might have been satisfied with answers that were not particularly specific because based on the specifics he does offer in this affidavit, it's surprising that he would leave such things so open-ended. another interesting point in the document, it does say that dr. murray did begin to administer cpr to michael jackson and at one point left the room mid-cpr. he said he needed to get some help from michael's secur
be right now without cherilyn lee to tip us off to what michael jackson might have been begging for here? >> there's no question that she re-directed all of the attention to this specific drug diprivan. because no one had ever heard of its use outside of a clinic, and certainly nobody had heard of its use with regard to michael jackson. i can't say when dr. murray allegedly told the cops, or admitted to them that he administered propofol. i suspect it may have been after cherilyn lee came forward, because they may have redirected the line of questioning. but clearly, she is the unsung hero in this investigation. she came forward. she had the character to say no, this is not proper to give this drug. and she stood up to michael jackson's request as apparently many doctors have not in the past. a lot of doctors have given him drugs, and we've seen it over the past. and that's clearly what the investigators are looking for. it's not just the death investigation, they're lookinging over years now of alleged drug abuse. i suspect even after the death investigation is concluded, you're going t
